ABIDJAN JuJu Smith-Schuster Jersey , Aug. 20 (Xinhua) -- Cote d'Ivoire's sports authorities on Tuesday decided to suspend the organization of any international competitions in the country until further notice, an official source said.

A statement released by the sports ministry said the decision is meant to respect measures taken by the government to prevent the entry of Ebola virus which is spreading rapidly in the West African region.

"Different sporting federations are hereby urged to suspend organization of any competitions of international nature across the entire national territory," the statement said.

Cote d'Ivoire was set to play against Sierra Leone on Sept. 6 in a football match to qualify for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.

No case of Ebola has so far been confirmed in the country but the government has heightened surveillance. Early this month, the government announced suspension of all flights coming from the countries affected by Ebola virus.

The Bola virus which appeared in Guinea early this year T. J. Watt Jersey , has spread to other West African countries like Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria. The World Health Organization estimated the disease has killed over 1,200 people so far.

Welsh rugby has suffered a raft of injuries in the last half a year, mostly following the Lions. Big name players have dropped out of the Welsh squad over November James Washington Jersey , names like Lee Byrne, Adam Jones and Mike Phillips.

These losses have had a big impact on the Welsh game, leading to disappointing performances against the likes of Australia this November. Injuries that the Welsh couldn't afford to have. But which of the players have been missed by Wales the most, and which of these players would have the most impact if they were to return?

Let us take a look at the most 'vital' 3 Terrell Edmunds Jersey , and the obvious bonus one!

Mike Phillips. The Welsh game is based around small numbers of players at the ruck area, needing a 9 who can hold his own. Built more like a flanker Mike Phillips has the strength and power to compete against opposition back row players and, most importantly, get the ball out of contact with minimal protection.

It could certainly be argued that Phillips is most central to the Welsh game plan Cheap Pittsburgh Steelers Hats , though Dwayne Peel is a very able deputy who whilst not having Mikes traits of power and strength can get the ball away quicker and more accurately than any other scrum half in Wales.

Adam Jones. The Welsh scrum struggled in November without AJ. The Welsh prop made a big name for himself after saving the Lions scrum in the first test in the tour of South Africa and Wales sorely missed him scrummaging ability over November.

There is a real lack of quality tight head back ups in Wales, with very young Craig Mitchell and more often Loose Head Paul James having to step in.

Lee Byrne. One of Wales' most potent attacking outlets, Lee Byrne is possibly the best full back in the world at the moment. Offering a huge amount in attack, especially running angles off big hitting runners like Tom Shanklin and Jamie Roberts Cheap Pittsburgh Steelers T-Shirts , Lee Byrne is also a rock in defence – solid under the high ball and perfect positioning.

James Hook was forced into the full back role and whilst he offered a lot in attack his lack of experience in the position told numerous times in defence.

And the other player?

Gavin Henson. Who else? The internationally known player and other half of Charolette Church has been missing from the Ospreys on unpaid leave whilst he says he gets himself over injury, though there is a worry it is a prelude to his quitting the game. He offers masses going forwards, one of the world's most creative players, and defensively has matured into a vital part of the Welsh defence Cheap Pittsburgh Steelers Hoodie , as he showed in the 2008 Grand Slam. Such is his versatility he is also an international level 10 and 15.

So who is the most missed [Welsh|Wales} player?

Well every one has their opinion, but in my mind it is Lee Byrne, no question.
